The Sweet Ones (CLOSED)

Shopping Lower East Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Walk into this vintage store, and you’ll feel like you’ve been transplanted to some consignment fairyland, complete with a Victorian-era–meets–Clarissa Explains It All wardrobe, a papier-mâché tree planted at the center of the shop, a wooden swing (owner Alyssa Pallett is known to encourage customers to climb aboard), a diner booth, a Flintstones vending machine and a hot-pink bike. You see, the Sweet Ones is designed to attract the inner child in NYC’s best-dressed girls: “Growing up, I lived vicariously through Barbie’s wardrobe,” says Pallet. “I sell things that remind me of what my Barbies wore, and gowns that little girls fantasize about.” Accordingly, the clothes are just as unusual as the decor, and most of them fall in the $60–$120 range. A-list designers include Oscar de la Renta, Escada and Vivienne Westwood, but you can also score indie fave Bitches with Cigarette Burns’ lace tops and velvet leggings.
